5 HEALTH & NUTRITION TIPS
Here at Newport Home health Agency we care deeply about our health statuses. Our community is filled with loving energetic individuals who have reason to live as long as possible. We believe that taking care of our bodies, and exercising our minds daily can buy us a little bit more time here in this life. Here are 5 health and nutrition tips that can help you achieve a better way of living, thanks to and brought to us by an article I read on www.healthline.com/nutrition .
- 1. Don’t drink Sugar Calories – Sugary drinks can be one of the most fattening things that our bodies consume on a daily basis. Part of that reason is because liquid sugar calories don’t get registered by the brain in the same way as calories from solid food.
So in this sense, for example drinking soda can result in a higher calorie intake than actually eating a bowl of ice cream.
- Don’t fear Coffee – Unlike most sugary/fruit drinks that can be linked to harmful diagnoses, such as type 2 diabetes, heart diseases, and obesity, a cup of coffee is high in antioxidants, and actually helps reduce risk of those listed as well as several other diseases that we manage to be at risk for. (See www.healthline.com/nutrition for a more in depth look.)
- Getting enough Sleep – Over time a poor sleeping pattern can result in being the reason our bodies would naturally resist insulin, it can also be responsible for a lack of appetite, and is a direct link to low mental and physical performance.
- Drink some water before Meals – In a case study science proved that drinking 2 liters (67 oz) of water per day can boost metabolism up to 30%. And in that same study proved that drinking half a liter of water 30 minutes prior to eating each meal increases weight loss by up to 44%. Wow!
- Eat Nuts – Nuts are loaded with magnesium, vitamin E, fiber, and various other nutrients that can aid in reducing the risk of common heart diseases, helps fight off diabetes, and can be found useful in terms of losing weight. In one case study almonds were shown to increase weight loss by up to 62% compared to carbohydrates.
